Complaint by Brazil.

On 21 June 2012, Brazil requested consultations with South Africa with regard to the preliminary determination and the imposition of provisional anti-dumping duties by South Africa on frozen meat of fowls of the species Gallus Domesticus, whole bird and boneless cuts, originating in or imported from Brazil.  The challenged preliminary determination and provisional anti-dumping duties are set forth in the International Trade Administration Commission's (IATC) Report No. 389 and published in Notice No. R-105 of Government Gazette No. 35030.

Brazil considers that the preliminary determination and the imposition of provisional anti-dumping duties, as well as the initiation and conduct of the investigation, to be inconsistent with South Africa's obligations under the provisions of the GATT 1994 and Articles 2.4, 2.4.2, 3.1, 3.2, 3.4, 3.5, 4.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.8, 6.1, 6.1.2, 6.2, 6.4, 6.5.1, 6.5.2, 6.7, 6.8, 6.9, 6.10, 7.1 and 12.2.1; paragraphs 7 and 8 of Annex I; and paragraphs 1, 3, 5, 6 and 7 of Annex II of the Anti‑Dumping Agreement.
